Pedro Polo, Spain: We are not soldiers, we are queers
Video on YouTube channel Refuse to Kill
(15.05.2020) My name is Pedro Polo and I am 57 years old. I declared myself an objector at the age of 19 when my country still had not approved conscientious objection. Later, at the end of the 80s I collaborated with the Conscientious Objection Movement in the Campaign for Insumisión. In these years I also became conscious of my sexual orientation and organised myself with other collectives and people forming the LGBTQI ANTIMILITARISTS. I am going to read part of the LGBTQI ANTIMILITARIST declaration, regarding the militarization of the COVID19 pandemic.
